Holy crap! There's a Buick on this list!
Say what you want about Consumer Reports, but the publication certainly does its homework. Many of its readers swear by its findings for a whole range of products, especially cars. So when its annual auto survey comes out, many people pay close attention. And now it’s released this year’s crop of the best cars, divided by classification. This Top 10 list is actually pretty diverse, brand wise. Sure there’s the familiar Subaru and Toyota, but this year both a Buick and Chevrolet made it. Just think about that for a moment.
Barely a decade ago, CR regularly faulted GM cars for their poor quality and reliability. Without further ado, here’s the complete list: Best Overall: Tesla Model S Compact: Subaru Impreza Midsized Sedan: Subaru Legacy Large Car: Chevrolet Impala Luxury Car: Audi A6 Green Car: Toyota Prius Sports Sedan: Buick Regal Minivan: Honda Odyssey Small SUV: Subaru Forester Midsized SUV: Toyota Highlander
